Hello mr. Kaplan

Thank you for clearing that up. As I read it, you would rather have a messy scan than no scan, which I fully understand. In the FAQ you write that the institutions are notified of comments, but do they ever come back with corrections?

Additional question: Is there any way for a user to help you correct mislabeled material? When I comment on a book that the text is in French and not in Danish as stated, it would be nice to be able to correct it on the spot.

generally speaking our policy is to not alter items that have been uploaded by users except at their request. for items uploaded by Internet Archive that have MARC library records we rely on those.

Hello again mr. Kaplan

So uploaders can label their stuff any way they want - and we both know they do - and basically no one else can do anything about it? Sorry to say it, but this does not seem like a professional attitude to archiving.
